Two years ago I put a sample of this idea in *very* rudimentary form on my
website. It's still there at:

As I said, it's rudimentary, but gives an idea of possibilities of
hypertext in music. (Some browsers may not show the embedded Midi frame

reloading the frame. Sorry, it's old code, and was just an example ... when
there was still an argument at all about frames in HTML!)
